Eggstraordinary Workspaces

Earlier this year Wadhwa Developers commissioned James Law Cybertecture to create an office unlike any other in Mumbai, India. Cybertecture Egg, an egg-shaped office building brings together iconic architecture, environmental design, intelligent systems, and new engineering to create a fascinating structure in the city.

The concept of this unique design was inspired by planets and sustainable ecosystems. Elements of the design and intelligence systems will work together to give this office building’s occupants a great place to work.

Japanese Monsters in Children’s Book Art by Gojin Ishihara

Filed under Art and Design, Odd World

When we was a kid, we went through a phase where we was way into monsters — Draculas, Frankensteins, demons from the pits of Hell, all that good stuff — and, as these were the dark days before the Internet, I would hit the library on a weekly basis checking out books illustrated with the scarier pieces of pop culture and mythology. Well, I’ve got to say that right now, seven year-old Chris Sims is insanely jealous of his Japanese counterparts, because they had Gojin Ishihara, a manga artist whose work on numerous children’s books from the 1970s is both terrifying and awesome.

Here is a collection of wonderfully weird illustrations by Gōjin Ishihara, whose work graced the pages of numerous kids’ books in the 1970s. The first 16 images below appeared in the “Illustrated Book of Japanese Monsters” (1972), which profiled supernatural creatures from Japanese legend. The other illustrations appeared in various educational and entertainment-oriented publications for children.

“Stooped People” in Hyper-real Sculptures of Evan Penny

August 10, 2010 by  
Filed under Art and Design, Featured

Evan Penny makes the kind of sculpture that is so realistic, so detailed, and so obviously a display of skill that it literally stops people in their tracks. But this alone isn’t why the artist’s work grabs the viewer.

Born in South Africa in 1953 to missionary parents, Penny became a naturalized Canadian and studied fine art at the Alberta College of Art in Canada where he concentrated on the figure and steel constructivist sculpture. It was not until after supportive encouragement from the artist Anthony Caro that he had the confidence to commit to the unpopular territory of figurative sculpture.

Penny began working as a guest lecturer and taught sculpture at various universities in Canada and the United States from 1982 until 1999. In addition he worked making prosthetic, with the most up to date technology in the film industry, for films such as Adrian Lyne’s “Jacob’s Ladder” (1989), Oliver Stone’s “JFK” (1991), Natural Born Killers (1994) and “Nixon” (1995). He also worked on David Cronenberg’s “Existenz” (1999) . Penny’s first solo exhibition in 1981 met with mixed reviews. His early sculptural works from 1979 to 1999 were commonly labeled as monstrous due to their unforgiving adherence to reality.

Illusions Through The Paintings Of Salvador Dali

July 11, 2010 by  
Filed under Art and Design, Funny

These are paintings of relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. These paintings present  Dali’s use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality. Practically this is collection of his development of the famous double image, the “paranoiac-critical method” that produced images that could be “read” in multiple ways. Take Salvador Dali’s works of art and find double effects!
